To buy books, videos and DVDs etc related to Korea in English (or with English subtitles) the Seoul Selection online bookstore is a major resource. They welcome information about new publications. They also publish a number of titles themselves. Books about Korea can also be purchased from  Koryo Books located in the US.  If you are in Seoul, Seoul Selection is also a place you can visit in person to browse or drink coffee in since their bookstore is also a cafe.

For Korean software (and indeed software in any language) see World Language Resources' Korean list.

To buy foreign books inside Korea, Interpark is recommended, though I have never used it.


Second-hand Bookstores

Bookfinder.com  is a very good resource for finding out -of -print books, but perhaps Alibris is better...

Abebooks.com  or (UK)  AbeBooks.co.uk   (Advanced Book Exchange) allows you to search the stocks of many independent bookellers for out-of-print and rare books.
